A Soldier's Perspective




Jason Moon was deployed to Iraq from Mar2003 to Apr2004, he spoke of his experiences and wonders how anyone can come back from war and embrace a compassionate life. "War is an atrocity... the concept of a professional soldier is an oxymoron, you can't expect a human being to do this, to be able to switch on and off your respect for human life." March 16, 2005 - UW Sheboygan WI Theater, sponsored by Sheboygan Veterans for Peace vetsforpeacesheboygan.org and Sheboygan Peaceseekers sheboyganareapeaceseekers.org.

speechless. this young man is more of a thinker and ethical than any professional "expert" in an ivory tower so far removed from the hell that is war. these bastards, the corporations/military complex far cats and experts should be put on the fron lines. god bless this soldier. He is a sage wiseman, so rare at any age of persons life. I have met 70 year olds who don't hold a candle to this young man.I really believe wisdom and love is not years on earth dependent

Subject: much respect
after viewing your video and listening to you speak i have nothing but respect for the men and women who serve for this country. without people like you there would be no freedom for all to enjoy. your sacrifices should be communicated to all to give us that better understanding of what you give/gave for your country.

Subject: Good to see.
He speaks honestly about his tribulations of being a soldier. There are some that are not like him - and have supressed their emotions to, after war, continue to struggle living a normal life.

It's sad to see people like this whom are touched by the war they've volunteered to be a part of.

I'm appreciative in seeing the realistic approach to what war can do to a person. It's not fun and games like recruiters suggest.
